Wen Robin

Wen Robin

Graduate of La Cambre in 2018, and winner of the Prix des Arts in Drawing and Painting 2018 of Woluwe- Saint-Pierre, Robin Wen lives and works in Brussels. The artist's pictorial practice explores the world of the Free Party through its lifestyle, that of a youth in search of freedom, an initially documentary approach. Using his personal archives or objects from his daily life, Robin Wen deals with the fragility and violence of this environment with strength and sensitivity. His paintings have become "anthropological objects" and bear witness to a universe that oscillates between the fantastic and the realistic. This practice is part of the tradition of genre painting, which the artist hijacks and repossesses.
